The Letter

Film Title: Becoming Jane

The letter

filled with words

too beautiful 

for most

to even imagine

love wrought

in every a, b, and c

connecting to the next

spaces filled

with emotion

pauses of her heart

needing to breathe

lines

one after another

soul searching

what does not seem real

yet feels intensely right

ink pouring passion

onto unfeeling blank pages

wishing them

penetrating a heart willing

hoping he absorbs

what is far beyond

mere words

Breathe Permission

Dear Poet

Dear Poet,

Breathe permission

on my heart

allow its fullness

to spill onto pages

with passion’s force

pushing to heights

I only thought

a dream

Open its doors

freeing dormant years

behind bars of society

crying release

from painful incarceration

Bestow the gift of abandon

unrestrained imagination

pouring through pen

without thoughts 

of judgement

only thoughts

of the privilege

to exist…

Dear Poet,

Breathe permission
